William "Bill" Lee Wills

November 20, 1970 ~ January 19, 2020 (age 49)


William (Bill) Lee Wills, 49, of New Bethlehem,  passed away unexpectedly on January 19, 2020 and was born in Clarion on November 20, 1970. Bill was the son of Bud and the late Carolyn (Hemler) Wills, also the step-son of Gwen Wills; Bud and Gwen survive and live in Summerville. Bill was the brother of  Deanne (Mike) Huffman of Irwin and Lori (Paul) Gray of Brookville. Bill was the uncle of Zac, Jordan, Isaac, and Ethan. Bill most importantly was a loving and supportive father to Kyle and Makenna Wills, both of New Bethlehem.

He graduated from Redbank Valley High School.  Bill owned Wills Contracting. He graduated from Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science and Clarion University. Bill pursued funeral directing then later moved onto Contracting.

Bill was of the Protestant faith.  He was a great friend and a very unique guy. He was a hard-working, genuine man who was never afraid to tell you how it was. In 2016, he was named the citizen of the year in New Bethlehem.  He loved cats and his “toys.” He also enjoyed riding his side-by-side and truck pulls.  Bill has such a kind soul he opened his home to people who needed it and would give the shirt off of his back to anyone.

Visitation will be held on Friday, January 24, 2020 from 2-8 PM at the Furlong Funeral Home, 50 Broad St, Summerville, PA.  A brief Time of Reflection Service will immediately follow visitation at the funeral home with Rex Munsee officiating.
